Your contract was ratified for the contract term: 01/01/16 – 12/31/18. We hope that the Newark City Council will approve the agreement and back pay will be received in June. We will soon begin negotiations for your new contract for the term 01/01/19 – 12/31/21. LEAD CONCERNS are growing, case numbers for our members have increased exponentially. More lead nurses have been hired to assist with the increased patients admitted with lead-based issues. Additional resources are required! JNESO has requested a meeting with the head of the Health Dept. to see what can be done to meet the needs of the Newark population.
Remember this is our Union and we all have a Voice!!
